oday Amazon announced the launch of it’s Amazon MP3 store for the iPhone and iPod touch. For the first time iOS users can purchase music from Amazon’s 22-million song catalog using the Safari mobile browser. If you’d like to access Amazon’s MP3 store, you can simply go to http://www.amazon.com/mp3 on your iOS device.
Music purchases are saved directly to Amazon’s Cloud Player, so users can sync it and use it with multiple devices including iPad, Kindle, and an Android phone or tablet.
You may be wondering why Amazon didn’t decide to make an app for this. If Amazon had sold their music through Apple’s App Store, they would have had to give 30% of each sale to Apple, but by offering it through their mobile optimized website they don’t have to pay any fees.
